 "We loved...your gardens behind Umpleby, and the 'white' gardens with old brick paths in front too.  The pleasantness of the innkeepers, and the place, the sitting room, the COFFEE!   The Blueberry Cheese Cake at Tea (I will always love you Dinie and Janet!).  The peace & quiet, the smiles.  Carl's secret-recipe Almond Liquor at our bedside, yum!  We'll be back."

Another Satisfied Guest
I just returned from spending the night at your inn (The Loft Suite).  I wanted to let you know how much my girlfriend and I loved it.  When we arrived your innkeeper made reservations for us at Marsha Brown's and gave us a tour.  We neglected to tell him we wanted breakfast delivered to the room (though he offered) and when we checked out we assumed that we would need to find somewhere to park and find breakfast as we had missed the one at the inn.  Much to our delight, when we checked out (mind you after we were technically no longer guests) we were offered breakfast since we had missed it!!  I couldn't believe it...and not just leftovers, warm croissants, muffins, just wonderful.  We were then told to go ahead and stay parked if we liked, come back and use the bathroom if necessary and that we were welcome to come for tea at 4 if we were around (unfortunately we didn't make it for tea).  I was and am still amazed.

Thank you for the 'inn-sider tip' to visit the Wildflower Preserve in Washington Crossing State Park and the Woodworking Studio of George Nakashima too: both places were not only extraordinary attractions just a mile from the Inn, but were also ablaze with color from Cherry Blossom trees, Pear trees and Magnolia trees. Of course I expected the April standards of tulips and daffodil plants....which did not disappoint me either. 

And Meuller's Display Farm for Bulbs (a mile in the other direction) was outstanding too. Its great to see hundreds and hundreds of the plants in bloom prior to ordering. 

I can see the many varieties of Lilac Bushes budding in your beautiful back yard: we'll be back in early May to smell them!

Nadine and Carl,
My wife and I enjoyed a wonderful overnight at the Inn earlier this summer.  We had received a gift certificate for the Inn as a wedding gift and would like to do the same for our nephew and his fiance who are getting married next month.  How do we go about ordering a gift certificate--and we would like to add tickets for a performance at the Bucks County Playhouse?  Thank you again for excellent hospitality during our stay.  We look forward to hearing from you.

This past Fall I proposed to my fiancée while sitting under a shade tree in the fields across from  the Umpleby House.  It was our first time to your wonderful town of New Hope and romantic enough to change the rest of our lives.  Now I would like to surprise her with an overnight stay at your Inn.  Can I purchase a Gift Certificate as a Christmas present and use it later in the year?

This inn is the best! Less than 30 minutes - but 30 million miles away, from Princeton, both New Hope - Lambertville and Umpleby House are friendly, cheery places. Pizza and Mexican restaurants were good and in our budget. Most nite spots had no cover charge for live music midweek. The River and the canal towpath were scenic and quiet places to walk. The Gazebo right here was a nice spot too. We're hooked on Tuesday morning at Rices' Market.  -- Clio and Charles (Princeton, NJ)

I received my Certificate for taking your ‘How-To’ seminar for aspiring innkeepers last week.  Thank you again for sharing your insights into the B&B business.  You provided invaluable information and an eye-opening 'back-of-the-house' look at the daily operations of an inn.  You also expressed that personal philosophy I have not come across in the many books I had read.  I still have innkeeping as my dream. -- E. Mendez (NYC)

Pillow Talk and Pictures

I can tell you that I will be back whenever I stay in New Hope and will certainly recommend your inn.  A great place, and a great bunch of people.  I can't thank you enough for making the trip (a birthday celebration for me) and fantastic experience. Everyone there should be commended.
Thanks again,

Michael P.

Couples Getaway
All my crazy out of state relatives LOVED your inn. Those procrastinators who wound up at hotels out on the highway were sooo jealous! Thanks for making my surprise party for Ed's 40th birthday a complete success. We'll come back in February to use the Gift Certificate I bought him.  --  Jane and Ed (Boston)

New Hope is a convenient and fun location to meet for the Marrone family from North Jersey and Philadelphia...and the Umpleby House is the place to stay.  Nadine and her friendly staff keep the most beautiful, clean and comfortable inn.  It's ideal for our reunions.  --  C & D of Hackensack, NJ
